In the Gutter

Crawley Borough Council wardens are just a tad ticket happy. They recenly fined the grandmother of a two-year-old who dropped a packet of crisps. The bag was retrieved quick enough, but two Quavers fell out of the bag.

Wardens watched in disbelief as Barbara Jubb kicked the crisps into the gutter. Springing into action, they may have even gotten to her before the ephemeral puffed snacks disintegrated into oblivion as a gutter-kicked Quaver would invariably do.

Now let me tell you, there is no Quaver kicking in Crawley. Mrs Jubb was slapped with an £80 fine. Onlookers at a bus stop couldn’t believe what they were seeing.

Fortunately, someone a little further up the ladder recognised that this was just a little over the top. A spokesperson said, “We have apologised to the family for being overzealous and are happy to have cancelled the fine.”

    Who wrote the ticket? Take a good hard look at the person who wrote that ti-ck-et because the BTK killer was an overzealous minor bureaucrat-cop-wannabe who worked for the city of Wichita writing out minor violations to people who couldn’t contol their barking dogs and didn’t mow their lawns. Just saying, this guy could be your next Jack-the-Ripper and he’s getting frustrated! LOL!
    How nutty are we going to get? I would think the flying rats would have loved the potato chips, where are the animal rights people when you need them? Aren’t you allowed to feed the wild life in the city?
